What does spaghetti have to do with love? Only Laurie Notaro knows, and she's not telling -- not til Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 7 p.m. when Chow Bella presents Candy Hearts, our second public reading at Crescent Ballroom in downtown Phoenix.

Notaro -- best-selling author and contributor to Jackalope Ranch and Chow Bella -- will be in town from Oregon to soak up some Arizona sun, and has graciously agreed to read her piece aloud, along with some of CB's other favorite writers, including:

Cynthia Clark Harvey, Katie Johnson, Elizabeth Maria Naranjo, Judy Nichols, Laurie Notaro, Robrt Pela, Julie Peterson, Sativa Peterson, Kim Porter, Eric Schaefer, Amy Silverman, Deborah Sussman and Kathy West.

Phoenix New Times' music editor, Jason Woodbury, will DJ, and you can buy food and drink from Cocina 10. Admission to the event is free, though we'd love it if you'd bring a canned good or two to benefit St. Mary's Food Bank.

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
